taken a step back on this debt ceiling standoff. should it be raised. this is how "the new york times" described it over the weekend. i'll put it up on the screen and have you react to it. backing down from the hardline stance, house republicans said friday they would agree to lift the limit for three months with the requirement that both chambers of congress pass a budget in that time to clear the way for negotiations on long-term deficit reduction, to add muscle to the efforts to bring democrats to the table, they would include a provision in the debt ceiling legislation saying that lawmakers will not be paid if they do not pass a budget blueprint. was it right to step back from challenging the president over raising the debt ceiling? >> well, i think the house proposal is a step in the right direction. no doubt the senate hasn't done it's job. it's been nearly four years since it's passed a budget. but it doesn't go nearly far enough. we have a crisis. i just got back last week from afghanistan. and i had multiple servicemen and women clasp me on the arm and say, please do somethin

getting word that as expected the house will vote on the debt ceiling limit for another few months, pushing it back to may 19. the report on this possibility yesterday in washington for the inauguration, this this might be a face-saving gesture on the part of republicans to gather their duffs and buy some time with a president who at least for the time being is more popular than they. what do you make of the timing of this vote? -- and what they will gain? >> i think the republicans were concerned about public perception of them not doing anything and i think it's a bad idea. i mean, i think this kicks the can down the road. move people say, we want a solution today. we don't want to keep having this conversation. every couple of months, we talk about the debt ceiling, what good is a ceiling if you keep raising it and you don't make spending cuts to keep yourself under that number? it has no purpose. >> neil: i want to take a look at the corner of wall and broad. many argue the reason why it was up 62 points is the fact that, whew -- it's a relief they won't bring this to the brink
boehner after the passage of a bill that temporarily suspends the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling through mid-may. it passed in the house of 285-144. briefing is about 15 minutes. [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] [captioning performed by national captioning institute] >> good afternoon everyone. with the passage of this bill today, it's pretty clear that we are sending a message to the democrat-controlled senate, it's time to do your job. the principle is pretty simple. no budget, no pay. american families have to do a budget and they understand you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. we're committed to doing a budget on the house side, a budget that will balance over the next 10 years. it's time for the senate and the president to show the american people how they are willing to balance the budget over the next 10 years. >> today's vote was the first step towards trying to resolve the nation's fiscal crisis in a responsible manner. look forward to working with the white house and the senate to do so. it's interesting to note with after almost four years
for the eurozone, as well, it's not just about the debt ceiling, they have to get the debt down. the debt ceiling may get raised, but it's not being tackled long-term. >> it seems every single time consistently we get the opposite outcome. which means some areas are consistent and it raises debt levels going forward. >> it seems to me as though we can't fix this one because democratically it's not possible. why? because there are so many verses who are automatically vote to increase the debt because the number of people who own entitlements or benefits is relatively high. and i think you're seeing this failure both in the u.s., in germany and to an extent in the uk. >> the trouble is for all of those economies maybe some of the european ones are under pressure by the government. but the problem is, if you look at issues in the u.s., they're just so low. there's no ability to cut in the long-term. how do you push through entitlement reform and address those issues, especially if there's no market pressure right now? >> my sense is that you don't. i don't understand how that can be achieved and, th

's debt ceiling through may 19. that vote is set for tomorrow. congressman paul ryan, last year's republican vice presidential nominee, said today republicans want to shift the focus to enacting a budget, with major spending cuts. the senate is going on four years now for not having passed a budget. we think this gives us the time we need in this nation to have a good, thorough vigorous and honest debate about what it takes to get our fiscal house in order and about how to budget. families budget. businesses budget. our federal government should budget. >> ifill: the bill also says if lawmakers don't enact a budget with spending cuts, they won't be paid. in the senate, democratic majority leader harry reid declined to comment on that provision, but he did say that, in general, he welcomes the house move. >> i'm very glad that they sent us up a clean... they're going to send us a clean debt ceiling bill. the other stuff on it will athat when we need to. i'm glad we're not facing crisis here in a matter of a few days. >> sreenivasan: president obama said he wanted a longer-term ex
the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144, speaker boehner said he's optimistic that will happen. >> if both chambers have a budget. democrat budget from the senate, republican from the house now you've got competing visions, for how we address this problem. out of those competing visions, we're going to find some common ground. >> ifill: but house minority
made this deal yeah, we are going to extend the debt ceiling. now, it gets attached to a balanced budget. >> two points, in regard to congressman welch. when you have liberal s ip the house and senate, that is their plan to spend more money. i know you are talking about our budget larry, but we have to step back. there is going to be no budget that takes place unless the senate passes a budget. but to get congress both chambers to work together, we need the senate to pass the budget. so we said no budget senate, no pay. that is a way to get the senate to engage. >> i'm not challenging your logic, but i'm challenging your process. the series of dates that is so important one is april 15th. i preseume that is paul ryan's budget. i don't see how you can vote tomorrow on a debt extepgs nsio increase and attach a balanced budget before you know what the balanced budget is. i see that as a problem. i want peter to tackle that. >> we are passing the no budget no pay act. it is going to give both chambers, the senate and the house to pass the budgets. what you are hearing is, the house is
to hit the grund running again in his second term. the debt ceiling fight has been delayed and they are looming on the issue of the budget more specifically the sequester that comes up at the beginning of march. those are spending cuts in military and domestic agencies and the continuing resolution. basically it calls for how they will pay for the government going forward. after march 27th the budget issues are high on the priority list. there are challenges as he faces the republican house. he heard from paul ryan and dick durbin and their opinions on what the president needs to do going forward. >> the green line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to h
of news. there is word of what may be a break through in the standoff over the so-called debt ceiling. the point where our nation can no longer pay its bills. house republicans are set to vote tomorrow on a temporary fix, which would raise the federal spending limit. now the white house says it won't stand in the way of that: even though the president says he would rather see the problem fixed once and foreall. the g.o.p. measure would buy us only a few months before congress would have to agree to a long-term solution. a second part of the proposal would force lawmakers in both houses of congress to pass a budget or they wouldn't even get paid. that's the g.o.p. attempt to force the senate's hand the democratic led senate hasn't passed a budget in four years now. mike emanuel son the top story at the bottom of the hour. live with us from the row rotuna on capitol hill. mike, house republicans meeting behind closed doors late today. have we heard anything? >> well, shep, some conservatives don't love this debt ceiling deal because they don't like the idea of adding to the nation's cr
they will allow the debt ceiling to be hiked and try to attach some spending cuts or at least say we need to be engaged in negotiations for further increase in debt hike. i think that was a recession for republicans in reality they were losing this argue uchlt. it reengineers to the point that 60 percent of americans think you have to have spending cuts right now. >> you listen to the president's senior advisor today he was talking again about a balanced approach saying whatever deal on the debt ceiling has to have tax loopholes closed. speaker boehner brought the 800 billion in loop whole closures in the beginning of the fiscal cliff negotiation that should be a part of this deal. despite the fact that the president wanted rate increase on the fiscal deal and that's all they want. >> you can see the democrats and white house believe they have the argument in their back pocket. they offered once they can call on it again if they are going to concede on any spending cuts. none have been discussed at least in the short term are going to solve the problem. the only way you solve the problem
are playing their version of let's make a deal over the debt ceiling. tomorrow the republican-controlled house expected to vote on a bill allowing the government to borrow money through may 18th. but they want something in return. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel live in washington with the details. what is the latest? >> reporter: as part of raising the debt ceiling the house republicans will demand that the senate pass a budget with spending cuts included and will try to force getting it done by april 15th. a short time ago the top senate republican issued this call to action. >> and so it's my hope that the president will finally be willing to do what republicans have been asking him to do since his first inauguration four years ago and that is to work with us on identifying durable solutions to the problems that we can only solve together. to put aside those things we know we can't agree on and focus on what we can agree on. and we should start with spending and debt. because if we don't get a handle on that nothing else matters. >> reporter: bottom line republicans recognize
in the house of representatives today pushed through a bill that will move the debt ceiling deadline to may, at least. while it doesn't solve it entirely, if the senate passes it, and the president signs it as expected, it will put off for now the threat of another political meltdown like the one that led to the downgrade of the u.s. credit rating back in 2011. >>> now we go outside, which depending on where you live, might take some steeling of yourself, given the air that has descended on a lot of our country. take, for example, nbc's kevin tibbles out in the cold tonight in chicago. kevin, good evening. >> reporter: hey, why not? well, it will take a couple more frigid days to freeze the chicago river, but tonight temperatures here in chicago, new york and elsewhere are colder than they are in juneau, alaska.

, but raising the debt ceiling for a budget to be named later is to me something i probably won't be able to vote for. >> if you raised it for three months unconditionally, three months from now what principles do you stand on to keep you from raising it again? >> all republicans have been frustrated by the senate failing to pass a budget. speaker boehner's office released inknow graphic about what could have been accomplished since the last budget passed on april 29, 2009. it clouded 179 round trips to the moon. circumnavigating the globe 73 times. leading senate republicans say it's time for the senate to step up. it has been four year since the senate acted on a budget. in fact, if you believe this. many of you have ipads. ipads didn't exist the last time the senate passed a budget. >> the senate majority didn't say no but he didn't fully embrace the house deal either. >> i'm glad that they sent us up a clean -- they are going to send us a clean debt ceiling bill. the other stuff on it, we'll approach it when we need to. glad we're not facing a crisis here in a matter of a few days. >>

they won the round because the debt ceiling will go up in may. without offsetting spending cuts. republicans counter getting the senate democrats to agree to a budget by april means for the first time in four years congress may be able to show some degree of real fiscal discipline. bret? >> bret: thank you. senate majority leader harry reid hopes to get a deal done soon with republicans over new filibuster rules. they want to require senators to be present when they filibuster. republicans are resisting that. reid hinted he may use the so-called nuclear option to change the rules, with a simple majority of 51 votes instead of the usual two-third. the dow continued its momentum, up for a fourth day if a row today. industrial average gained 67. to reach the highest closing value since halloween of 2007. the s&p 500 finished ahead two. the nasdaq increased 10-1/2. we will hear from the chairman of the house foreign affairs committee a bit later. up next, why you are giving a powerful weapon to enemy of a friend.

the national debt ceiling. republican leaders announced today the extension lets the government continue borrowing money until may 19. the current debt ceiling-- $16.4 trillion-- could be reached as early as mid-february. the house bill does not specify a new dollar amount. it does mandate that congress approve budgets, or lawmakers won't be paid. major league baseball lost two hall of famers over the weekend. st. louis cardinals great stan musial-- "stan the man"-- died saturday at his home just outside the city. he played 22 years, helping the cards win three world series titles in the 1940's. he was widely regarded as one of game's greatest hitters ever. stan musial was 92 years old. also saturday, former baltimore orioles manager earl weaver passed away, during a caribbean cruise. weaver won the world series in 1970, and took his teams to three others. along the way, he gained fame for his fiery, in-your-face confrontations with umpires. he was ejected from games 91 times over 17 seasons. earl weaver was 82 years old. >> brown: finally tonight, a closing reflection on the inauguratio
